too ghoul for school

Back when I was part of the amazing Robotronic Dynamite podcast (R.I.P.), we treated October like the month-long celebration of Halloween it’s meant to be. Thanks to what mostly amounted to the hard work of Brandon Fincher, we had a couple years in a row that aimed a white hot spooky spotlight on our very own Halloween music compilations, Too Ghoul for School.

In the spirit of the season, I’ve resurrected both volumes from the dead. The track lists are staggering (39 and 46 tracks, respectively) and cover pretty much all the bases. I STILL listen to these annually, so they’re definitely worth preserving.
